Simon Cowell gives up smokingSimon Cowell has given up smoking because he is worried that the habit is making him age quicker.

Simon’s made no secret of enjoying the unhealthy pastime previously saying: ‘I genuinely still love smoking. I equate smoking with having a good time,’ but it seems vanity has taken over and Simon is determined to give up for good.

The news that the Britain’s Got Talent judge has ditched his beloved cigarettes was broken by Amanda Holden who recently revealed: ‘Simon does not smoke any more’.

To help him kick the addiction Simon, 53, has taken up smoking E-cigarettes, which use vapour technology. Amanda added: ‘He has got a vaporising cigarette instead. He smokes air, or rather water. It’s amazing.’

But this isn’t the first time Simon has attempted to give up. Just last year he turned to hypnosis to help him cut down to 15 cigarettes a day however he was unable to stop smoking completely.

Good luck Si!
